Update/Upgrade policy

November 22nd, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

Howdy !

I have received many queries on Website Watcher Updates. Here we go:

Update/Upgrade policy

Update to new versions

1.         One year of free major updates
The initial purchase of WebSite-Watcher includes one year of free major updates. Major updates are indicated by a change in the first version number, for example an update from version 2010 (10.0) to 2011 (11.0). The life cycle (and reference date for updates) of a major version always starts with the date of the first beta version, for example 2010 (10.0 Beta-1). That means that you usually get one major update for free.

2.         Free minor updates and bug fixes
If you buy a copy of WebSite-Watcher, you will get all minor updates and bug fix releases (within the same major version that was released within your update subscription) for free. Minor updates are updates where the first version number is not changed. For example an update from version 2010 (10.0) to 2010 (10.1).

3.         Update price
Once your update subscription has expired, you can buy a new major version inclusive 1 year of free major updates. The price is only 50% of the full version.

4.         Bought versions will never expire
If you decide not to renew your update subscription, then only the ability to update to new major versions expires. Your license doesn’t expire and you can work as long as you want with a version that was released before or within your update subscription.

5.         Buy an update whenever you want
You can renew your subscription at any time, also months or many major versions later to get access to recent versions. You are not forced to prolong your update subscription on the same day it expires. The “one year free major updates” clause restarts on the day you buy the update.

If you wish to upgrade, here are links for the costing and for your easy reference:

What’s new in WebSite-Watcher 2011

We’re are delighted to announce the release and immediate availability of WebSite-Watcher 2011.

Below you can find selected highlights of that major new version, a full list of new features and changes is available in the very long version history.

Virtual folders
Virtual folders contain only bookmarks that meet certain criteria which can be defined in the virtual folder dialog. For instance bookmarks that contain certain keywords or bookmarks with a certain check status message.
For example, you can create a virtual folder for your hometown and enter keywords that are related to it. Then all pages (from any folder) which contain one of these keywords are listed in that virtual folder. More…
Changes side bar
When you open a bookmark in the internal browser of WebSite-Watcher 2011, you can see the changes bar on the left side. This bar shows where changes and keywords are located and makes it easy to scroll to these locations. The changes side bar is optional and can be enabled/disabled in the View menu. More…
Offset before first change
When you open a bookmark and WebSite-Watcher automatically jumps to the first change, it is always shown at the top of the browser window. With that feature you can scroll back the configured number of pixels. This makes reading of the first change much more comfortable for certain pages. This option can be configured per bookmark (“Advanced” tab + “Options”).
Automatically download RSS feed enclosures (podcasts)
WebSite-Watcher 2011 comes with an integrated download manager that can be used to automatically download RSS feed enclosures (for example “attached” MP3 files). This feature can optionally be turned on per bookmark.

Further highlights:

  • Internet Explorer Macros with CAPTCHA protected logins supported.
  • Import/Export bookmarks inclusive properties from/to Excel spreadsheets. More…
  • New special filter to monitor entries in drop down and list boxes.
  • Pre-defined ignore filters (globally or per folder)
  • Highly improved Javascript support for Internet Explorer Check Macros
  • Rewritten and enhanced Excel Plugin
  • Option “Ignore updates” supports a white-list mode. More…

WebSite-Watcher is a powerful yet simple website-monitoring tool, perfectly suited to the beginner and advanced user alike. If you can work with an email client, you can even work with WebSite-Watcher!

The software places you in complete control over what gets checked, when it gets checked, and even how you are notified.

Many file/page types

  • Monitor web pages
    Monitor web pages with a minimum of time. Why waste hours surfing the web, when WebSite-Watcher can do this job for you within a few minutes. Supports all kind of pages with textual content (html, asp, php, …).
    ScreenshotVideo
  • Monitor password protected pages
    Logins to a password protected page can be recorded with the integrated Check-Macro feature. These macros are executed when WebSite-Watcher checks the bookmarks for updates.
    Video
  • Monitor forums
    Efficient way to monitor forums for new topics and replies using forum templates. Works with all major forums including phpBB, SMF, vBulletin, IPB, etc.
    ScreenshotVideo 1: Forum-PluginVideo 2: Forum-Wizard
  • Monitor RSS-Feeds
    Website-Watcher converts RSS/Atom feeds into a readable format using a template system. So you can use the full power of WebSite-Watcher to detect new or changed RSS postings within a single tool and also monitor password protected RSS feeds behind a login.
    ScreenshotVideo
  • Monitor Newsgroups
    WebSite-Watcher offers a base functionality for reading and writing new newsgroup postings and answers. The newsgroups functionality can also be used with the keywords functionality to monitor postings for specified keywords.
    Screenshot 1Screenshot 2
  • Monitor PDF/Word/Excel documents
    WebSite-Watcher automatically converts PDF/Word/Excel documents into HTML files, so you can check them like normal web pages and also search for specified keywords.
  • Monitor binary files
    Binary files (for example zip or exe files) can be monitored via the file date, the file size or via a small part of the content. That allows you to efficiently monitor large files without having to download them. Dependent from the server, WebSite-Watcher will choose the best checking method automatically.
  • Monitor local files
    Monitor local files and directories and use the same powerful features as you do for web resources.
    Screenshot

Control what gets checked

  • Powerful yet simple filter system
    Powerful yet simple filters enhance your control, and allow you, for example, to ignore changing banners and adverts. Filters can be created automatically with the self learning Auto-Filter system, or manually with the filter wizard. Simple wildcard filters and regular expressions give you total control over the filtering mechanism, so you can exclude parts or only watch specific areas of a page; very useful for dynamically generated content or sites with extensive advertising).
    Video 1: Auto-FilterVideo 2: Manual filter
  • Highlight changes
    Highlight changes in pages that have been modified. No need to compare the old content with the new, when Website-Watcher can do this for you. See what you’re looking for in seconds. Filtered content will not be highlighted, so you will not waste your time to look at stuff you are not interested in (for example advertising or a changing user counter).
    Screenshot
  • Monitor pages for specified words
    Looking for specific words within a website’s pages? Or perhaps you’re waiting for a certain word or phrase to appear? Website-Watcher can handle both tasks with ease. Only get an update notification when specified words are within new/changed content, furthermore WebSite-Watcher will highlight these words, so you see them within a second.
    Video
  • Monitor whole sites instead of single pages
    The Follow-Links feature allows you to monitor complete websites instead of single web pages. Using this feature, hyperlinks in a page are inserted automatically as new bookmarks. You have control over the link depth or which URLs should be included or excluded.
    Video

Control when it gets checked

  • Manual checks
    Monitor pages only after clicking the check button.
  • Automatic checks
    Check pages automatically with the AutoWatch feature. You can define if and how often a bookmark should be checked when WebSite-Watcher is in AutoWatch mode
  • Automate checks and tasks with the integrated scripting language
    A simple yet powerful scripting language lets you automate specific tasks. For example to check bookmarks, create a report and send the report by email without having to execute all these commands manually step by step.

Lots of other features

  • Additional actions when updates are detected
    For example to play an alternative sound, send emails or open the changed page with another program. You configure the software to work the way you want.
    Screenshot
  • Powerful Plugin system
    Bookmark checks can be enhanced with the integrated Plugin system. For example to monitor a page for a specific price and alert an update only if the price is less than USD 100. Plugins must be written in the programming language Basic. WebSite-Watcher contains an integrated development system, no other tools are required.
  • Work with checked pages (Searches, Reports, etc.)
    All monitored pages are saved to your hard drive. This allows you to quickly and simply open and view the monitored pages, search text in downloaded files and make reports… all without even having to be online.
  • Archive pages permanently
    Keep the information you need by archiving pages with our tool Local Website Archive. This can be done automatically via the bookmark properties or manually on demand.
  • Synchronize bookmark files
    Synchronize bookmarks between computers with the synchronize functionality.
  • Backup and Restore
    The integrated Backup/Restore feature allows you to backup and restore your settings, bookmarks and downloaded files into/from a zip archive.
  • Lots of other features and options
    Simply download the 30 day trial version and enjoy letting WebSite-Watcher work for you. Save Time, Stay Informed!

I reckon that browsing tens of pages is not on my agenda for years now 😀

Website Watcher has saved me a “couple” of hours of clicks and reading probably obsolete data/sites.

How do you perform to that?
